|Let the fun commence|
BELFAST – A wedding in Northern Ireland went badly wrong when the bride and groom’s enthusiastic love of HBO‘s fantasy drama Game of Thrones led to unforeseen but ultimately tragic carnage on the day of their wedding.
Kieran Fagan and Melissa O’Rourke were married in a traditional service at the Roman Catholic church of St Mary’s in West Belfast, Northern Ireland. After a three hour pause during which time professional photographer Alain Dreary forced the couple into various ludicrous poses in inappropriate settings, the guests reconvened for a reception at the Four Bells Hotel in the outskirts of the city. One guest recounted to reporters what occurred next:
Kieran was dressed as Rob Stark and Melissa as his true love Jeyne Westerling. The reception had been done out with torches and flagons of wine and the food was served in that kind of cod medieval style that you see on your programme there. Well, Kieran’s friends from his D&D club had decided to pull a little prank. They surrounded the guests and were carrying what looked like crossbows.
Toby Coughlin, who organised the prank, is being held by police. His father released a statement:
Sure, it was just a bit of fun. The lads got carried a way and I’m not saying their weren’t some throats cut and some crossbow bolts fired into throats, but anyone who’s been to Irish wedding will tell you, it can’t officially be called a wedding if there isn’t a bit of a ruckus.
Police are still investigating how a man like Kieran, an enthusiastic Dungeons and Dragons enthusiast, got a girlfriend – let alone a wife.
Jim Carrey has since withdrawn from the Fourth Season of Game of Thrones.
